Types Of Polyethylene
Sep 16, 2017
  • · Low-Density Polyethylene (LDPE) is a highly flexible material with unique flow properties, making it great for plastic film applications such as shopping bags.

  • · Linear Low-Density Polyethylene (LLDPE) is very comparable to LDPE, with the added advantage of being altered by adjusting the formula constituents and using less energy during production.

  • · High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE) is a strong, dense, fairly stiff plastic with a highly crystalline structure. Common uses include garbage bins, plastic for milk cartons and laundry detergent, and cutting boards.

  • · Ultrahigh Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMW) is a highly dense version of polyethylene that can be spun into stretchy threads with strengths far greater than steel; it’s frequently used in high-performance equipment such as bulletproof vests.
